http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...27#post2874527

In the picture with the three of us together, Dave is in the Aggie shirt, TDD in the Raider one. I had already changed cause it was too hot at the game.

sometimes I think this game is rigged to let higher star teams win more. I have a 5-3 lead with 1 out in bottom of the 9th with my opponent having guys on 1st and 2nd, theres a single to left field and my fielder throws to 1st allowing one run to score, next guy strikes out, then next guy hits a 3 run homerun so I lose 5-7. I wish there was a intelligence skill so my fielders would stop making idiot plays (I watch many of my games and I'm hurt but these plays more than I'm helped)


Plus now that I check 3rd division page it shows I'm 0-2 with 10 runs scored a 14 runs against but I've only played one game, somehow it got entered twice. How can I fix this?

Dark Elf: I found a easy victim on our pro league schedule, Monsters with Black Bats. Kings Horror beat him up first, let me know and I wasted him 10-3.

Thanks for the tip on the rebirth team today btw!

Yeah, I did take advantage of them!

I also notice your team is still 6*'s. Have you been having trouble keeping up with the training or is the team just not progressing?

12-2 final?? what the hell happened?
looks like the elvis team is playing you next.. I hope you beat the crap out of him, because all he does all day is challenge himself with the same 4 2* teams over and over again
and his stats arent even very good

yeah, I had to go out of town last week for business. I intended on training my team while I was out of town, but I was really busy, so my team suffered. Also, the laptop my company gave could not pull up the DT. So the little I did train, I had to use the ST....

though before I went out of town I was bouncing between 6 and 7 * for at least 3 weeks...

edit: I'm back up to a 7*....I'll never figure out this star crap...I'm sure I'll be back to 6* at some point

I did the bouncy thing between 6* and 7* for about a month myself. I think I've finally got them to be a stable 7*.

rookie update:

roughly 3 pies of training per skill

Running:
Corrie - +92
Toby - +89.01

Throwing:
Corrie - +71
Toby - +101.01

my guy is #1 on the team in throwing after about 3 pies.. and he is throwing 186 feet.. so obviously 3 pies was enough to max him out..

we will spend the next three pies training catching skill.. before starting on the 3 batting areas.

your team and my team matchup very even

i would guess if we played 10 games.. we would split them 5/5

nice win

it was a tight game, tied at 2.. till you had the 2 running inning in the bottom of the 8th

But you play Smallball much longer than I do. And you should be little higher than I do.

nawww.. you know that has nothing to do with it..
we started fresh and had no idea how to train.. so alot of people went in opposite directions and ended up with big problems to fix

the new people have all been able to benefit from our experience.

thats why so many people in here have scrub teams that jumped up to 7 and 8 stars so quick.. because we learned how to build them better..

as Ive always said about this game.. its so much easier to catch up, then to pull away..

especially when benefitting from the advice of people who have already built a team or two.
